Jaguars claim Robiskie, place Sims-Walker on IR

Mike Sims-Walker’s return to Jacksonville didn’t last very long.

The Jaguars announced that they placed the wide receiver on injured reserve Wednesday with a knee injury. He returned to the Jaguars, who he played for from 2008-2010, after being cut by the Rams on October 17th. He played two games and had one catch for 11 yards.

He’ll be replaced on the roster by Brian Robiskie, who the team was awarded off of waivers. Robiskie was waived by the Browns on Tuesday when they signed running back Thomas Clayton to bolster their ailing backfield. Robiskie has been a disappointment since being selected in the second round of the 2009 Draft out of Ohio State, compiling 34 catches for 441 yards and two touchdowns during his time in Cleveland. It would be surprising to see him turn things around in the current Jacksonville passing game.

Sims-Walker will be a free agent after this season and it will be interesting to see who gives him a shot. He had a strong season in 2009, but regressed a great deal last season. He also has a history of knee problems and the fact that he was a total non-factor in St. Louis this season to overcome while looking for a new job.

    Someone will take a flier on MSW after this year. Wouldn’t expect much, though.

    Whatever works for them

    *sigh* alright maybe sims-walker will get released again thats what happened the last time the jags put him on injured reserve they released him afterwards.

    Well…Robiskie isn’t exactly a stud but he’ll at least be a bigger target for Gabbert. I’m just really hoping for Justin Blackmon in the draft next year. This passing game is holding the Jags back from being contenders in the AFC South

    Sim-Walker with a bum knee could get more seperation from a DB than Robo. Still its good to see the local kid get another shot, albeit not a good one.

    That’s Sims

    It’s RobisKIE

    It’s not that difficult.

    Hey look, Mike Sims-Walker is hurt again, good thing the Jags let him go to St Louis….

    Dang it, not again!

    We Fail At WR !!

    Good kid from a nice family. I wish him well.

    From one atrocious offense to another for Robiskie.

    Robinskie was a classy Brown. Good guy. Just not a very good pro, unfortunately. I hope he finds success in Jacksonville.

    Doesn’t matter who you pick up. Until the Jags get an OC that isn’t afraid to spread the field and let the rookie pass and learn like other rookies are doing it’s a lost cause. Quick slants, few out routes, bubble screens and hand off to MJD. That’s the extent of Dirk Koetter’s game plan. As a result we are 2-6. As Bill Parcells once stated “you are what you are”.

    As a Jag fan, all I have to say about our WR situation is:

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    We have CFL receivers. :(

    *roll eyes* so long, Mike… we hardly knew ye!

    That should keep seats from being tarped over on Sundays.

    Yea, “local boys” like Brady Quinn?

    Jacksonville should hire Matt Millen as a GM, they would never run out of receivers then.

  20. hopendawg42 says: Nov 2, 2011 8:58 PM

    Brian, Just hang on for a couple of weeks til the jags have to play at Cleveland. I’m sure the Browns will help turn your career around.

  21. donniebmc says: Nov 2, 2011 9:08 PM

    Yay… How exciting! It seems like more of the same with the Jags picking up reject receivers from other teams. ( Dennis Northcutt, Troy Williamson, Jason Hill, Mike Sims-Walker, and now Brian Robiskie…)

  22. turbodog1027 says: Nov 2, 2011 9:35 PM

    Jax doesnt need receivers anyway. Del Rio wants to go back to the wishbone. How is that guy still a head coach?

  23. someidiotfromouthereintheprojects says: Nov 2, 2011 10:04 PM

    jax fans. i’m a carolina fan, and i hafta tell you. blaine gabbert reminds me of jimmie clausen. he looks out of place in the nfl. and i see no grey area. you either have IT or you don’t.

    Matt Millen had a plan. That plan was to draft 7 wide receivers a year, every year, until he found the best receiver. It may have run the team into the ground for half a decade, but at least we have Calvin.
